Wipaire Adds New Interior Capabilities
We’re pleased to announce the expansion of our interior capabilities. In order to better serve our customers, we’ve added a full cabinet shop at our Fleming Field facility. “By bringing these operations in-house, we will be able to offer increased quality with more control over both the construction process and delivery timelines,” stated Will Perez, Wipaire’s interiors manager.
The new cabinet shop is comprised of several new pieces of equipment, including a table saw, band saw, jointers, and work space for assembly. Cabinet components are cut using a CNC router for the ultimate in precision fit and finish. These pieces are then assembled in the interior shop’s assembly area. Following assembly, they will have the finish applied. Commonly a thin wood veneer, the finish is another area of personalization for a unique interior. After the finish is applied, the cabinets have a protective film applied that will not be removed until installation is complete to ensure that the finish is pristine upon delivery.
We added our interior shop over 20 years ago, and have been providing high-quality refurbishing ever since. Our specialties include custom work of all kinds, including custom cabin layouts, fabrics, leathers, and even creating a special seat contour to match a customer’s back profile for optimum comfort. “We work with each customer to determine what will match their style and needs,” adds Will. Wipaire boasts an interior design center where customers can sit down and see, touch, and combine different samples to brainstorm ideas for their perfect interior.
Wipaire’s soft goods capabilities cover cutting new carpet (typically using existing carpet as a template for an excellent fit) and finishing the carpet with either tape or stitching. Additionally, we can re-upholster seats with a variety of leathers and fabrics, and even cut new foam to refresh your old seats or create a plush retreat. We also refinish sidewalls and headliners, and can add options like drink rails and tables. We can even coordinate custom embroidery for a truly personalized look.
Don’t forget—we’re also available for repairs and touch-ups in addition to complete makeovers. Contact us today to learn what we can do for your airplane.
